Stop Sweating It!

A precautionary device to protect against cargo loss due to moisture damage referred to as “container rain” or “the sweats”.

Moisture Related Damage to CargoHumidity is a term used to describe the amount of water vapor present in air. and this summer, there sure is a lof of it!  Water vapor, the gaseous state of water, is generally invisible to the human eye and if left untreated, it can be very destructive to stored items such as electronics, textiles, metals, spices, flour, automobile interiors and marine cabins. It can also weaken cartons and warp labels.

Each year around 1.7 billion metric tons of goods are shipped around the world and a worth of $500 billion goods are damaged every year before reaching their end-destination, 10% of these are due to moisture damages. Did you know that those containers could be protected from moisture damages with as little as $75?

Too low humidity may make materials brittle and too much can make materials soggy or damp. A particular danger to delicate or sensitive items regardless of the operating humidity range is condensation. Condensation is the change of the physical state of matter from gas phase into liquid phase and occurs when a sealed item or area are subjected to fluctuations in extreme temperatures.

When an item is transported from a cold place (e.g. garage, car, shed, shipping carton) to a warmer place, condensation or the "the sweats" may develop and coat surface areas that could lead to:

  • Short circuits in electronics
  • The growth of mold or mildew
  • Corrosion and rust on metals
  • Spoiled food items
  • Peeling and warping
  • Deteriorated packaging
  • Clumped or caked powders
  • Chemical degradation

Desiccants Are Easy, Effective & Inexpensive!

To offset moisture related damages and prolong product quality, many factories and fulfillment centers place a desiccant packet inside their finished product and/or packaging. A desiccant is a vessel made of a solid, moisture absorbing substance that induces or sustains a state of dryness in any environment inside its sealed vicinity to preserve, prolong and protect items during transit or storage.

Resembling a sugar or salt packet, these “Do Not Eat” pouches are commonly found inside pre-packaged consumer goods and regulated products such as pharmaceuticals and food items. Designed to regulate moisture as goods pass along the supply chain, desiccants are also used to reduce bacteria and pathogens that thrive in wet surfaces pressure but not all desiccants are created equally.

Cargo Dry is Consistently Ranked Among the Highest Performing in the Moisture Absorbing Industry.
